Apply by August 1 for capital project funding from the Green Municipal Fund

July 19, 2017

Do you need funding for an innovative environmental capital project in your community?

FCM’s Green Municipal Fund (GMF) offers low-interest loans of up to $5 million, combined with grants, for environmental capital projects related to energy, transportation, waste and water through FCM’s Green Municipal Fund. Applications are accepted twice a year and the next deadline to apply is August 1, 2017.

Contact an FCM advisor at 1-877-997-9926 or email to ask questions and find out if your project is eligible before you apply. You can also find information about eligibility and how to apply online.

The GMF also offers grants of up to $1 million for climate change capital projects through the Municipalities for Climate Innovation Program. Applications are accepted year round until January 2020.

There may be opportunities for your municipality to stack GMF funding with grants from the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre if your project can meet the performance targets and criteria of both funding programs.  Contact the MCCAC for more information on how their programs can help your municipality reduce energy use and emissions.
